Turnaround Watch: The School Improvement Grant Program

Three national organizations involved in education journalism–Education Week, the Education Writers Association and The Hechinger Report–have collaborated with news organizations around the country to examine the federally funded School Improvement Grant (SIG) program, which has received more than $4.6 billion since 2009.

These organizations are looking at how states, districts and individual schools are using this huge influx of money, and whether the funds are achieving the intended goal: helping improve student outcomes in the nation’s most troubled schools.
